Miss Mary Quinn of
the West Side
HER SKULL CRUSHED IN
While Crossing' a Field on Her Way
to Her Home She Was Seized by
Some Person, at This Time Un
known, Beaten Into Insensibility
by Some Blunt Instrument, Prob
ably a Stone, and Then Ravishod.
Her Groans Attracted the Atten
tion of Two Men Passing on a
Keyser Valley was last night the
scene of a crime unparalleled in the
annals of the city for atrocity.
Mary Quinn, a comely unmarried
woman of about 30 years, was the vic
tim. Some unknown flond seized her as she
was crossing a field near her home on
Twenty-fifth street, crushed in her
skull In two places, probably with a
stone, and then ravished her.
At 2 o'clock this morning the phy
sicians said she could not live many
hours. There Is not the slightest sus
picion as to who her assailant can be.
Miss Quinn lived with her brother,
Hotel Keeper John Quinn and her sis
ter, Anna Quinn, in one of tho small
"company" houses just beyond the
largW pasture field of the Delaware,
Lackawanna and Western railroad,
bounded by Luzerne street on the
north, the Keyser Valley branch of the
Lackawanna road on the east and the
lane leading from Luzerne street to the
Continental, on the west.
WENT FOR YEAST.
Shortly after 9 o'clock last night,
she discovered that she was In need of
yeast, and started with a bottle to a
house on Washburn street, near the
Hyde Park colliery, to procure It.
It Is supposed that In returning home
she took a fehort cut acioss tho pas
ture field, as was her wont, and that
her assailant, espying her from the
lane, crept up behind her, felled her
with a stone, and finding that he had
completely silenced her, struck her
again while she was prostrate. Her
underclothing was torn and blood
stained. Between 11 and 11.30 o'clock, Joseph
Frudowski, a blacksmith at the Con
tinental, and John Lukas, a miner,
both of them Polish, were coming
along the lane when they heard a
woman moaning. They crossed the
fence, when they came opposite to the
point whence the moans emanated, and
began a search.
On the far side of a small bush, five
yards from the fence, they found a
largo lock or switch of woman's hair
matted with, blood. Twenty yards fur
ther on, In an almost direct easterly
line, towards the center of the field,
they found a woman, with her up
turned face covered with blood.
Lukas, stayed near by while Frudow
ski hastened to give the alarm. It so
happened that the first house he came
to with a light in it was tho Quinn
When John Quinn was told that a
woman was "half murdered down In
the field," he would have suspected
probably that It might be his sister for
whom he was waiting, but Frudowski,
In giving the news, said It was a cer
tain other woman, the wife of a neigh
Quinn accompanied the man back to
the field and was horrified to find that
the misgivings he was unable to dis
miss were realized. The night was so
dark and the spot so removed from
an electric light that the features
could not be discerned. When a match
was struck and the face disclosed, a
glance told Quinn it was his sister.
Neighbors quickly gathered and on
an Improvised stretcher made of fence
boards she was carried to her home.
Telephone messages brought Dr. J, J.
Brennun and Dr. L. II. Glbbs and Rev.
P. K. Lavelle. She was unconscious and
niowoniess, una tne oniy evidence or
vitality was constant moaning. Tho
doctors said that even though she
might live for several hours, she would
never recover a moment's conscious
ness. On the left side of the head where
tho forehead meets tho hair, tho skull
was crushed In for a space of four
Bquore inches nnd tho crushed frag
ments not only rested on the brain but
lacerated It, Above the right eye, the
skull was also crushed In but not so
senousiy as on tho top of tho head.
The blows were indicted with terrific
force. Tho doctors Inclined to tho be
lief that a heavy stone with a lucrced
edge was the, weapon useU
Whether or not there wore other
slighter wounds the doctors did not
stop to ascertain, bending their efforts
to relieving the biuln of its depressing
sections of skull, They worked zeal
ously but with no hope of saving the
woman's life, '
It la not Impossible that the woman
was attacked on the lano and dragged
Into the field, but tho general belief In
clines tho other way because It was
customary for her and her neighbors
to cut diagonally across the (mature

even any evidence of a struggle. The
grass Is tall and had there been a fierce
struggle some evidence of It would
have been dlsccrnable. Some distances

o'clock and saw a woman pass under
the electric light at the Delaware, Lack

away, going in the direction of the field.
Some little time later two men passed,
whom he subsequently recognized as
the men who found the body. About 11
o'clock he started toward the center of
West Scianton with Patrolman Collins,
but had not gone far when they were
overtaken by a trolley car, the con
ductor of which told them of the crime.
The two officers immediately started
for the field where Miss Quinn lay.
Lucas and Trudowski heard no out
cry of any kind until the groans at
tracted their attention. None of the
people living In that vicinity heard any
screams or cries of distress.
No tramps have been seen thereabouts
for some time.
CONFERENCE ON VIADUCT
Detailed Plans Are to Be Prepared
at Once by the City Engineer.
Those at the Meeting.
A conference on the viaduct ques
tion was conducted late yesterday af
ternoon In Recorder Connell's office. It
was attended by the recorder, City So
licitor Watson, Director of Public
Works Koche, City Engineer Phillips
and Major Everett Warren, the latter
representing both the Scran ton Rail
way and Delaware, Lackawanna and
Western Railroad companies.
Recorder Connell announced that he
was prepared on behalf of the city to
carry out at once the provisions of the
ordinance providing for the construc
tion of the viaduct. It was decided to
have City Engineer Phillips and the
chief engineer of the Delaware, Lacka
wanna and Western company confer
at once nnd agree upon the detailed
plans and specifications for the work.
Recorder Connell said last night that
as soon as these are prepared bids will
be advertised for and the contract
awarded at the earliest opportunity.
STREET FAIR AND CARNIVAL.
Elks Are Arranging for the Great
Event They Are to Give.
The Scranton Lodge of Elks will give
another "carnival" during the first
week of July, on even a more stupen
dous scale than the one which created
such a hot time in the old town about
two years ago. The attraction will,
of course, be the Bostock Ferarl
Mighty Midway Carnival company.
The Bostock aggregation Is a sort of a
combination of "the mightiest show on
earth" und a "World's Fair Midway."
It gave Scranton such a "start" when
here last that no doubt Its' reappear
ance will be Impatiently awaited,
Bostock Is without doubt the great
est "animal" man on the western hem
isphere. He owns enough wild beasts
to swamp all the big circuses on this
sldo of tho water. Of course he doesn't
brjng them all With him in his carni
val and it is well for the peace of mind
of the city that ho doesn't. He brings
as many as his force can manage and
that Is enough.
' He has still as features of the carni
val Gaston Arkoun's "Beautiful
Orient," which is nothing moro or less
than the midway of the World's Fair
and Pan-American, the German Village
with its yodlers and good cheer, the
village of fair Japan, the blograph, the
Venetian gondolas, the crystal maze,
the Moorish palace of illusions, the
Ferris wheel, tho barn yard circus, tho
bands and the lights and tho parading
camels and elephants and the entire
glint und glitter of the memorable
event of two years ugo.

RESCUES A LADY FROM NEB
The surest and speediest banUher of
disease and sickness known to medical
men, Is Palnc's Celery Compound.
The peculiar virtues of Palnc's Cel

the centres where disease Is working; It
quickly banishes all pain nnd trouble.
At this time Palne's Celery Compound
is a veritable boon to every nervous,

to tho present, can be, permanently ban
ished by the use of a few bottles of na

Mamie Goukler, No. 668 39th street,
West Philadelphia, Pa., who has suffer

afflictions, writes as follows:
"I beg leave to add my testimony to
the wonderful good Palne's Celery
Compound has done me. Some months
ago I was troubled with a general
breaking down of the system. I con
sulted a physician Without avail, and
upon the suggestion of Mr. John A.
Coin, who, I believe, Is a living example
of your wonderful curing medicine, I
purchased two bottles of your com

wonderfully since the first dose. My
